Sheikh Mohamed El-Moctar El-Shinqiti, Director of the Islamic Center of South Plains, Lubbock, Texas , states: “We don’t need to investigate the origin of this type of oil or the remaining of the food particles in it, if there is. Especially taking into consideration the fact that soap is not used for consumption purpose, but for washing the body. This kind of investigation is tanattu’ (hair-splitting). The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) taught us to avoid such unnecessary complications.”
